»Vexillology« Column in »Hrvatski vojnik«, 2012

»Hrvatski vojnik« br. 402 (2012.)

Following a few articles on the flags from the Military Museum issued in 2010 in the »Hrvatski vojnik«, the magazine of the Ministry of Defence, since the issue 394 Željko Heimer publishes a regular column on flags and the science that deals with them. The column, located regularly on the third page from the back of each issue of »Hrvatski vojnik«, issued every two weeks, is illustrated with high quality photographs and drawings of historical and contemporary flags, military, naval as well as many other kinds from Croatia and the world heritage, and is named appropriated the »Veksilologija« (The Vexillology). Besides the regular various vexillological topics, each issue presents also a flag of a Croatian Armed Forces unit from the  Homeland War, from the collections of the Military Museum, of the CAF General Staff and other sources.

During 2012 18 articles were published, and the additional articles are expected in 2013.
